Zoning changes supported to allow for more daycares in Saanich

Saanich council this week unanimously supported a bylaw amendment to make it easier for adult and child daycares to be opened throughout the municipality.

Coun. Susan Brice said the move, which allows both types of daycare under more than 25 municipal zones, helps Saanich prepare for changing demographics.

“This is in keeping with our desire to have walkable, livable communities – where parents can drop off their children, or family members can drop off seniors without having to needlessly travel out of their communities,” she said. “It’ll take years before all neighbourhoods have these amenities, but allowing for them and encouraging them is certainly a good first step.”
